Roxanne in the Wind. I think this came out wonderfully!

Colleen at the Airport. Not my favorite, but working with a slightly smaller, full page character.

Except for that one hand, I love how this came out. Need to practice my digits. Still, fun!

Roxanne against Wall

Roxanne against Wall

Another picture that's not my favourite, although it's better than the previous one. I was going through a difficult drawing period; kind of like writer's block.

There is a famous adage that goes, "Only the pure of heart can make great soup." I kind of feel the same way about drawing; if my mind can't focus on the work, if I get antsy, impatient, overly distracted, or my mind is just in a different mood, the whole thing just doesn't really work.

That said, this didn't come out terribly or anything, just not my favourite. I liked the idea of this one, however.

Ooooh boy. I think I'm gonna need a new category for this one... "least favourites?" Something like that. But I do like to share the images that don't come out all that well as well as those that do so... here we are!

I guess that's not entirely fair. I actually had given up on this drawing very early on for being unsalvagable (it was still in blue lines at that point). The angle seemed wrong... everything seemed wrong. But with some encouragement I came back to it and finished it off. It's funny, it's the eyes more than anything else that came out wrong. Still, practice, live, and learn.

Sloane on a Laptop

Sloane, on a laptop.

I have to say, at first I didn't like this drawing; felt weak technically and also a tad out of character for Sloane. But the more I look at it, the more I like it. Certainly it's in character, if a moment out of nowhere. Could've used less rushing towards the end. ::slaps hand:: Bad fox! Take your time drawing! Sharpen your pencils!

Colleen, sitting in a restaurant. Waiting... for you?

I like the headband look. I'll have to come back to it some time.

Sarah blushing

Sarah blushing

Sarah, blushing and looking at the floor.

I think this picture captures her personality well, too, and also fleshes out her fur pattern and the fact that, yeah, she's a mouse and all that. Still not perfect, but working on it. The only thing that really bothers me about this picture is her eyes... kinda feels like I caught her mid-blink. Wanted her to be looking at the ground shyly. ::kicks in frustration:: Welp, that's learning, can't always be perfect!

Sarah, looking shy

Sarah, looking shy

Another new character! Oh, my! Meet Sarah, the nerdy but friendly mouse!

Having fun coming up with new personas to draw. If I have to admit it, I find this drawing kinda "eh;" it's partly that I haven't drawn a rodent in way to long! I still think it captures her personality well. More of her to come, too!

BTW, if you haven't already, check out her necklace. I have to get me one of those!

Sloane, sitting back

Sloane, sitting back

Sloane, sitting back. This was probably even *more* fun to draw then my first Sloane drawing!

Fleshing out the character a little, in small details. Came out really well, with one exception. I didn't notice this until the day after I drew her, but I gave her a Collie tail! ::slaps forehead:: Yikes! It does look good on her, and I wasn't super convinced by my earlier wolf tail, but I don't know... we'll have to see. Still kinda embarrassing ;-)
